Getting some Christmas sewing out of the way this week and decided that I wanted to personalise some gifts. With that in mind I decided to try my hand at some goldwork lettering. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of the process.
I first found a font that I liked on line and traced this out on tracing paper. I then stitched this down onto a linen backing before removing the tracing paper. Larger areas of the lettering where then filled with a felt padding. The felt was then covered in coloured smooth purls. Here is the result….
There are a few little mistakes, where the purls are a little too long/short – but on the whole, and if viewed from a distance, I think they work very well together. Now to make the rest of the gift!!
Thank you for popping in, happy stitching!
